OMG! My daughter is going to the RNC!
CJ | July 29, 2004 | CholeraJoe

Posted on 07/29/2004 5:52:00 PM PDT by CholeraJoe

My 15.5 year old daughter just received notice that she has been selected to attend the Republican National Convention as part of the Junior Statesmen Program through Northwestern University. She's going to have private meetings with key Senators, Cabinet members, Congressmen and staffers. Maybe even a photo op with Condi, Laura or Jenna. What a blast for a great kid.

She just completed an intensive program in American Government at Northwestern, where they take 100 high school kids and have them spend 6 weeks in the dorms at Northwestern attending classes 5 days a week and meeting with Congressional staffers and actual congresscritters on Saturdays. She received notice today.

At the Program at Northwestern, the mix was about 65% Libs, 35% Conservatives and she slammed every debate she had to participate in. She wore her "Fox and Friends" T-shirt to class and got the nickname of "Foxy."

Can you tell that I'm so proud?

For those in the know, she also wore a Pontiac GTO shirt to class and replied to the comments, saying,"My Dad, has a GTO. No, not an old one, a 2004 model. And the acceleration will rip the fillings out of your teeth."

She is so her father's daughter.

What a trip, bud. Wish I could be there with her but I'd probably cramp her style. She is fully conversant with the "shotgun and shovel" lecture. "If you're not a gentleman, my father has a shotgun and a shovel. Reckon anyone would miss you or find your body."

She's your daughter allright! Congratulations. You're right to be so proud. Tell her to bring home lots of souveniers.

Tell us what wise words you are sending her there with.
